Police in Georgia are looking for the person who took a BB gun to an elementary school playground and started shooting.

Kevin Johnson, the father of one of the students shows a photo of his son. “That’s the wound. Yeah man, they hurt my little boy.”

A first grader, who was one of 10 students injured Thursday afternoon at Wynbrooke Elementary School, after police say someone armed with a pellet gun started firing at the playground.The shooting happened just after noon.

Eleven-year-old Caleb Edmonson was eating lunch  in the cafeteria when he and his classmates started hearing reports of an active shooter.

Caleb says, “The teacher that was in there, he was asking the janitors to lock the doors and then he was trying to close the blinds and couple minutes later we saw ambulance, police officers coming in and running down our hallways.”

When news crews arrived on campus, they met a half dozen parents who claimed that they knew nothing about the shooting until they saw it on the news.

Barbara Madison, an aunt of a student explains,  “I have yet to receive a phone call or email till now. I still don’t know anything that’s going on. Haven’t heard anything from staff. I don’t know anything.”

The school district for comment but they declined the offer to go on camera. Instead, they sent a statement writing in part:
“There was never a threat of anyone getting into the school building and the remaining students were not injured.”

The school district went on to say additional staff and the police will be at the school Friday.
